Herbal Interest

Everytime I get a cold, my interest in herbal teas and remedies spikes to an annual high. Some things I am curious about are mullein, pleurisy root, goldenseal, marshmallow (not the white fluffy kind), and pine (yeah, like a tree).

Do any of you awesome homesteaders have any experience with making and drinking teas using these? Do they work? How hard are they to grow (other than a pine tree obviously)?


  1. Well, every time I try to kill the mullein around here, I get four times as much the next season....so starting with that one ought to be easy.....
